Ford received a government backed loan, they didn't receive a bailout. Additionally, the federal government didn't allowed GM and Chrysler to avoid the normal bankrupcy process. This violated one of the most important first principles of our Constitution and our Founding Fathers. We are a nation of laws, not men, and the Federal Government is supposed to be there to protect all citizens from others who would infringe upon their rights. In this case the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT at the direction of our President, was the agent of the violation of our laws. THAT IS WHAT WAS WRONG ABOUT THE BAILOUTS!
Cost of attending Dem Convention, $5,000.00 Holding up a sign that says Ford on it during Granholm speech using the auto bailout as an example of the POTUS leadership for everyone to see...PRICELESS!
The key to your last statement is that half of the party can't see and the other half, do and agree with this presidents "fundmentally transforming" the United States of Amerika. The evidence of that was the vote the other day that supposedly put back in their platform that Jerusalem was the capital of Israel and their support of God. It took at least three attempts to get that through and it was clear that at least half of those that were on the floor voted no. The DemcRAT party is not the party of our fathers and mothers in the 50's and 60's. The DemocRAT party is now made up of at least half that wish the federal government was more of a dictatorship or oligarcy rather than a representative republic.
And that represents only those still looking for work, or those who are still in the labor pool. The real unemployement rate is much higher.
I agree that there are some people in positions because they have risen to their level of incompetence. This man is most likely one of them. He is most likely a political appointee. I have worked with some of the best and smartest people in the ATF. The agents in the field who do the real work that make us safe. Remember, they are required to do what their bosses (read political appointees) tell them to do. Please do not compare the agents in the field to those who thought up this cabal and followed through with it. Remember that it was a field agent that brought this into the light of truth from the darkness at the risk of his life and career. There are a lot of good people in the ATF.
NO apparently you don't. A federal employee who has lied (perjury) to Congress is placed on administrative leave. He gets a job working for a bank. He is now getting two salaries. One from the bank (maybe legit depending on how he obtained his job) and one from taxpayers. He is effectively being paid by the taxpayer for a do nothing job (also illegal, called double dipping). And the reason he's on administrative leave is that he was actively involved in the Fast n' Furious operation that lead to the death of at least one federal agent. And you don't think that that's important?
Hello, it's 2012. Bush isn't running for President.
I too agree with much that 8411c says here, except that during Watergate Nixon didn't have the press in his back pocket. However, besides Issa & Grassley, we should be thanking the following: John Dodson the courageous ATF agent who brought this out of the light of darkness in the first place. Dave Codrea and Mike Vanderboegh who have been blogging this for a long time and brought it to Issa & Grassley. Sharyl Attkisson from CBS who reported on it as well. And of course, Katie Pavlich Keep up the good work folks. I believe that if this plays out into November, the better for all freedom loving patriots.

The National Association of Gun Rights is stating that the second round can come as soon as August 27th. The UN will attempt to establish gun controls on us through a "Programme" as opposed to a Treaty and then have Obama through Executive Orders force this issue upon the American citizen. The official title of the "Programme"; United Nations Programme of Action to Prevent, Combat, and eradicate the Illicit Trade in Small Arms and Light Weaponse in All It's Aspects. Part of this program is to restrict the sale of firearms, require registration of all firearms, and restrict the sale of ammunition. Buy a gun, buy lots of ammunition, learn to safely use the weapon, become a marksman in the use of that weapon and stand ready when called.

I do not know what quote you are referring to, however Jefferson did say this; "On every question of construction carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text or invented against it, conform to the probable one in which it was passed." - Jefferson The Founders gave our government and it's people a means to amend our Constitution. If you don't like a part of our Constitution you have every right to attempt to amend it though the legal means provided.

If you don't want to purchase and have available to you a firearm that can prove helpful in defense against tyranny, then so be it, but you or anyone else has the right to keep me from being able to purchase one either.
